Synopsis

Artist Dainius Liškevičius invites us into his living space where the line between the mundane and the creative is blurred. Home videos and contemporary documentary footage form the film’s cohesive tapestry, with the artist’s flat playing a central role. The flat reveals the everyday world of not just the artist but also his family. This microcosm shows the many ways how day-to-day activities – the ritual of removing the Christmas tree, parties, moving furniture, choosing which drawings will go on the wall, drinking tea – are transformed into performances. The private home space turns into a scene, and family members become actors. The mysterious story of the flat is unraveled in parallel with that of the artist’s works.
